openSUSE 11.0: Don't like Cashews?

From the listening-to-users department, the openSUSE 11.0 Plasma desktop toolbox contains more useful options as in KDE 4.0 but still many users want to hide it. Try this with our KDE packages on openSUSE 11.0 RC or equivalent from the build service: stop plasma (kquitapp plasma), search in ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc the "Containments" config group with the "plugin=desktop" entry, add "ShowDesktopToolbox=false" there and restart plasma. :-)

Great, thanks for the tip!
BTW it only worked for me on 2nd try, because I have 2 sections [Containments][$N] (N in 1 2) where plugin=desktop. They differ in screen=((N-1)). Is that normal?

Sounds like the post-RC1 fixed bug that overlapping screens were not merged.

Right. I updated libqt4-x11, moved away the rc file and relogged in for good measure, and that helped.

Nice, if the option to hide the plasma toolbox shows up in stock KDE. What I'm actually wondering about is, why everyone refers to it as a cashew. It always reminds me to the Gnome foot.

That is why I choose openSUSE. Cashews could be usefull in nexts releases, but now we have no reason to see it
